FarmVille is a farming simulation game, via social network, that was developed by Zynga in 2009. It's a similar game to Happy Farm, Farm Town, and the Harvest Moon series. The gameplay involves various aspects of farm management such as plowing land, planting, growing and harvesting crops, harvesting trees and bushes, as well as raising livestock. It's available as an Adobe Flash application via the social-networking website Facebook, as well as Microsoft's MSN Games, and as an app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The game is a 'freemium' game, meaning there is no cost to play but players have the option of purchasing premium content. It was at one time the most popular Facebook game, however recently has seen a decline in popularity.
